The Sludgelord News - MetalX Radio - Small Stone Records Showcase

Readers of The Sludgelord -

Local X Radio is based in Memphis, Tennessee. The station’s heavy metal format, Metal X, airs each Monday at 7pm Central US time. You can listen on our website at We also have an app that works with Apple and Android. Download the app at

This Monday, June 1, Metal X is airing a special record label showcase for Small Stone Records. The entire show will exclusively feature bands on Small Stone’s roster, such as Freedom Hawk, Gozu, Sons of Otis, Wo-Fat and Abrahma. This will be the second record label showcase we have aired. Several weeks ago, we aired our first label showcase for Grimoire Records. That show featured the likes of Foehammer, Corpse Light, and Barbelith.

A significant part of our vision for Metal X is giving airplay to bands in diverse genres. As fans of doom, sludge, and stoner (along with their many subgenres), we support The Sludgelord blog and the bands associated with these genres. Metal X wants to play more than the usual recycled metalcore and deathcore that seems so prevalent in heavy music media.

With that being said, we welcome music submissions for airplay. We invite bands (signed or unsigned) of any metal genre to submit to Grant at All metal genres are accepted. We are open to international bands, so please submit even if you aren’t in the US.

Please share this article through your own social media channels. Any support is greatly appreciated. Find the Metal X Facebook page here:

Thanks to Steve for allowing us to share this with you. And thank you for reading.
